Central Saint Martins are introducing a masters in biodesign

A step closer to a totally sustainable fashion future.

It has been announced that Central Saint Martins is going to launch a masters in biodesign, according to a report by Business of Fashion the course will be led by Nancy Diniz. Diniz is an architect who has dedicated her career to turning microbes into material.

Earlier this year it was found the fashion industry’s carbon footprint is bigger than the airline industry, and while multiple brands have vowed to produce sustainable collections, the big question over fashion’s future in regard to the Earth’s health still looms.

“We are living this moment of ecological crisis,” Diniz explains to Bof. “It really legitimises the importance of this degree, and others as well.”

This course is the first of its kind, but hopefully not the last. The fashion industry is starting to wake up to its ecological responsibility and educating the new wave of fashion graduates is a big step in the right direction.
